Urgent action is required of all of us

Rapid changes are taking place. Whether or not we accept peak oil, global warming, and climate change, increasing gas and food prices are an undeniable reality. Economic decline, financial meltdown, and the housing crisis have come together in a perfect storm that challenges us to make better choices. Responses range from survivalist homesteaders, earthship bioneers, and ecovillages to Transition towns and eco-cities. Ecolocity welcomes all of these approaches and hopes to weave them into a vision for the DC Metro area.

UDC College of Urban Ag and sustainability (CAUSES) have  plans to develop food hubs in all wards of the city. Their sustainability vision is  to close the cycle in growing food and recycling food waste into compost.  The food hubs are built on 4 components: food production, preparation, distribution, and collection of organic wastes for composting.  I'm preparing a push in DC with the gov't and advocacy community to advance a commercial scale food and organics yard waste composting project at…See More
